Tupelo Honey - Raleigh
Southern comfort food with an interesting flair.
Best brunch in Raleigh!
Liked it so much we are going back tonight with our husbands!
Although we very much enjoyed our meal, we were disappointed and surprised to learn that the restaurant was completely out of avocados. This was especially frustrating because many dishes included avocados as a main ingredient and 2 out of our party of 4 wanted to order avocado dishes. We were told by our server that the restaurant only purchases avocados from Southern Foods and they didn't have any available. We thought it was strange that the restaurant could not purchase them from somewhere else.
The only other negative thing was the high noise level. It was very busy, and one at our table had some hearing loss and had difficulty hearing the conversation.
Sadly, our eggs came to the table almost raw. They were inedible. We sent our meal back to cook longer and it came back exactly the same. The yolks were raw but even the white was barely cooked on these poached eggs. We have been here numerous times and have always been pleased but not this time. We will not be coming back. The manager was very kind and offered to pay for our lunches which we were very thankful for!
Avocados were missing from the menu because of a strike so that was kinda sad.
it is a tad pricey. Service is always excellent.
Love the location and ambiance.
Food and service was fantastic, Hanna made the dining experience great!
The food was delicious as usual but the service wasn’t good at all. The place was not busy but we still had to ask our server for coffee refills,
I shouldn’t have to ask for refills of free drinks-that should be automatic unless I tell you otherwise.
I also walked away with the perception that the servers didn’t want to be there since she had a bit of an attitude.
Maybe from the tip I left her she’ll learn that I didn’t want her to be there either.
Out of house beer, food cold but overdone. Not special like it used to be!
Fun. Friendly, courteous, prompt service.
Something for everyone.
I like it.
We celebrated a birthday with family at Tupolo Honey and enjoyed the food and location. The biscuits are to die for. Interesting breakfast foods that add flare to the menu
We used to love Tupelo Honey. The menu seems, however, to have lost a great deal of its character since expanding to a chain. It is sad that we are now removing this restaurant from our list of favorites.
It was an overall good experience. Food was great and so was the service.
Our brunch was fantastic! And our server was superb. She handled our loud group of girls reuniting after years of being apart and silly shenanigans! She was patient and on top of it with everything we needed.
Really appreciate the flexibility of the restaurant accepting our change of guests at the last minute and seating us as soon as we got there. There's nothing I would change. Love Tupelo! Food was fabulous too, of course!
We had the cauliflower appetizer - good and spicy - and fried chicken, and fish and chips along with collard greens. All were good. They give you a LOT of chicken - a wing, drumstick, thigh and breast, but hey, leftovers.
We just had a local beer, but they have a decent beer and wine list and some interesting craft cocktails. This place stays busy and it can get noisy, but not to the level where you can't talk to your table companions.
The service was excellent, present, helpful and friendly, but not intrusive.
If you are hungry for some southern comfort food - a little chef'd up - you'll like it. Valet parking or park in the covered lot.
Great food and awesome staff.
Excellent, delicious food devlivered to our table in a reasonable amount of time looking lovely!!!
Great selection of food and drinks.
The food first came out really cold, so when I sent it back, I thought it might actually get better. However, the food that they brought back out was so greasy, and I do not think that they actually brought me sweet potato pancakes that I ordered initially. I think they just threw some pancake mix together and pulled eggs and bacon from the grease and put it on a plate. I used to love going to Tupelo Honey, but the last two times that I have been has not been a pleasant experience.
I've been to Tupelo Honey several times and every time has been a positive experience. Their food is always delicious and so fresh! Definitely recommend to anyone!
Food is always good, but some portion sizes are tiny for the price. Service was pretty slow - thankfully we were catching up with some friends and were not in a rush.
Always excellent. Took out of town guests and they really enjoyed it.
Average food but great service. The Bloody Mary was ok. The Brussel Sprouts were too dry and flavorless . The shrimp and grits were good.
Food was amazing, nice place for Sunday brunch. It was very busy but the hosts were very accommodating and sat us upon arrival.
Overall, our party enjoyed our meal and time at Tupelo Honey! We were frustrated that even though we made a reservation we were initially asked to be seated at a space too small for our party, which the hostess recognized and then offered us another table with a short 15 minute wait. We knew it would be busy and were not surprised that the waitress was flustered and took time to see us. We ordered drinks from the bar and our meal her first time back to table after bringing napkins, which we were ok with! Drinks were another matter. Our party got 2 Cokes about 10 minutes after we ordered, 1 Bloody Mary 15 minutes later, our food came in about 20 minutes (no complaints there), and a Mimosa 5 minutes after that. Then the waitress brought a mimosa instead of a 2nd
While we loved our visit to the restaurant in Asheville the quality of food and the entire experience in Raleigh was lacking in comparison. I had to send my plate back because it was cold and when my new one lacked seasoning. The only redeeming part of the meal were the fried green tomatoes. A waste of almost $60 after we added tip for our nice but inattentive server.
They had our table ready, the food was great & worth the money. However, they need more servers because our server had to cover a lot of tables but He was still sweet and very attentive to us as much as he could.
First time visitors but will certainly not be our last. Excellent service and very tasty entrees. The staff went out of the way to make this a memorable visit for my Mom’s birthday and they really helped make her bday a memorable one!
Great southern seasonal food! Something for everyone.
Table in the middle of the isle and 93.5 rating -- we won't be back.
I'm on the fence as to whether I would revisit Tupelo Honey-Raleigh location on Oberlin Road. I was meeting friends for brunch on Saturday, reservations at 11:30 AM. Finding a place to park was horrible. No place to park in parking deck and overflow lot was also full. After four trips around the block I settled on "Complimentary" Valet parking. While no charge for Valet, I always feel obligated to give Valet a tip.
Once inside, we were greeted by friendly hostess. 11:30 reservation, we were finally seated approx. 12 Noon. Once seated, service was very good. Our server was very helpful, attentive and gave us good recommendations and good explanations about some of the items on the menu. Food was very good, hot and tasty. Nice options to choose from, including for people with particular diets/restrictions. I enjoyed the Southwestern Omelette, with Potato Craklins. Omelette was huge and delicious.
I would recommend Tupelo Honey for the good food. However, the parking situation at this location would give me pause to revisit.
It was our first time there and we are already looking forward too when will be going back again! The menu was easy to read over, they had such great options we took a little longer ordering since the dishes all sounded so good.
I loved our server very polite, on top of things, water was always filled. This was a fantastic experience and we have already recommended friends and family to go ahead and try it for themselves because we know they won’t be disappointed.
Thank you for bringing us a enjoyable evening and a tasteful dining experience.
Service was on point. Chorizo left out of one dish on accident. A couple of food items were really good. Most of the food was okay.
We where sat at a table next to the bar and the bar tender was waiting our table. He did not have the time to tend bar and wait a table. Because he was having to double duty the experience was terrible. Food was very good.
Only one complaint, the women's bathroom was very smelly and not very clean feeling.
Love, love, love the food, everyone was so nice and welcoming
Brought two colleagues here from out-of-State. Cocktails were horrible. Manhattan Not made correctly; my craft cocktail tasted like it had sour mix in it. Service was nice but super slow even though they weren’t busy. Food was just ok. Will not be back.
Two words, FABULOUS AND PHENOMENAL! Went for Sunday Brunch and will be back!
Very busy! 15 min late to be seated despite reservations and service was slow but you can never go wrong with the food! Worth it!
